FCPA - Keeping Your Board on the Straight and Narrow


October 4-5, 2012

Bass, Berry & Sims FCPA attorneys, John Kelly and Wally Dietz, will present "FCPA - Keeping Your Board on the Straight and Narrow" at the 9th Annual Boardroom Summit presented by Corporate Board Member and the NYSE Euronext. The two day conference features general sessions, breakouts and discussion groups that cover important governance issues facing all public companies today, committee-specific workshops, and invaluable networking opportunities.

More information about John Kelly's and Wally Dietz's topic below:

Recent changes in the U.S. and U.K. laws have spawned a new era of anti-bribery enforcement activity. Does your board have a sound compliance program in place to address the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act? This breakout will share lessons learned from recent FCPA investigations and how they impact corporate officers, and it will evaluate important considerations for boards, such as:

  • How do responsible directors incorporate day-to-day board oversight into a compliance program from an FCPA perspective?
  • When and how should general counsel communicate FCPA risks and/or issues to the board?
  • Should the board have a separate committee to oversee FCPA investigations?
  • What additional risk mitigation strategies should boards put in place?
